substantial bayance and aid, plus an imf deal but the marshaling world public opinion is also against this kind of move by mr. morsi. we appreciate president morsi's action but in the past it's always been the united states that's brokered these deals and there's a clear perception amongst hamas that they won on this one. unfortunately the plo, abbas and others, have been diminished as a result of the negotiations and settlement reached. i predict hamas will continue to test the israelis and how far they can government finally let's trace it back to iran. where did the missiles come from? iran. where are the iranian revolutionary guard on the ground, irsyria. the centrifuge continues to spin in tehran. we've got to face up to what is one of the prime reasons there's the kind of unrest we're seeing. >> let me button you up the morsi thing. what should our demand be? >> stop. stop, renounce the statement and move he just made. allow the judiciary to function. if the judiciary is flawed in some way, then that's a illness that can be cured over time but to assume this kind of power is una

locked up $4.5 billion loan from the imf that he had an opportunity to test and create some cover for this move, but clearly the reactions in the street, the reactions from his own minister of justice suggests that there is going to be push back. i think in the end the real problem here i don't think it's an authoritarian brotherhood as much as a dysfunction political system. we can't look at this in a frame-by-frame exercise. only 22 countries in the world have maintained their democratic character continuously. this democracy club is an elite club, and time is the ultimate arbitor not only of good wines and the like but if a good country can maintain it's democratic character. it's a long movie we're watching. >> eliot: and a tenuous moment where morsi is trying to bridge the gap between mubarak and institutions and as you said a few moments ago the judiciary is a mubarak holdover and he's getting along better with the united states than his own support structure. >> he's borrowing a page from the mubarak book. can morsi play the role of totalitarian if he supports american and isra

happen? could there be immediate tax cuts we're looking at now help get us there? >> look. imf studies show definitively that if you cut spending in a situation like this, it does lower the gdp but nowhere near the amount the increase in taxes lower the rate of increase in the gdp. so i think that if we have to have a moderate recession to solve this huge fiscal problem that's in front of us, i think that is a very small price to pay. because we're not going to get out of this thing without paying. there's a presumption here that we have a whole schedule of economic policies which can just basically solve the problem as though it is a normal situation. it is not. this is an extraordinarily unprecedented situation, and unless and until we rein in the spending growth, this economy can't function. >> the economy can't function. so he's saying a little recession is better than the idea of raising taxes on everyone. a fascinating conversation with the former fed chairman. you can hear more of it on this country's fiscal house needs to be put in order. the president say
